Washington (JTA) — A co-
alition of American Jewish
groups opposed to trading
land for peace has embarked
on a media campaign aimed
at "redirecting" the Middle
East peace process.
The peace process, which is
backed by the U.S. govern-
ment and the Labor
government of Israeli Prime
Minister Yitzhak Rabin, will
lead to tragic results, the co-
alition believes.
The Coalition for Israel, as
it is called, has support
among a variety of organiza-
tions on the right of the
American Jewish political
spectrum. It held a news con-
ference here to announce its
campaign.
"The message we have for
the Congress and the ad-
ministration is, 'Hey, don't
count on American Jewish
support for the direction of
the peace process in its cur-
rent form,' " said Elliot
Jager, a coalition official.
The group is organizing a
petition drive among Ameri-
can Jews, to call for a refer-
endum in Israel before the
Rabin government agrees to
any territorial compromises.
While the majority of
American Jews support the
peace process and welcome
the Clinton administration's
approach to the negotiations
between Israel and its Arab
neighbors, speakers at the
event said that they them-
selves represent an often-
s ignored segment of Ameri-
can Jewish public opinion.
Speaking to a small au-
dience, Coalition for Israel
representatives said they
were in favor of "peace for
peace," a formula involving
water rights, trade, com-
merce and diplomatic rela-
tions, but not land conces-
sions.
"Peace negotiations
should really have very little
to do with land," said the co-
alition's president, Howard
Weber.
Speaker Dennis Seaman,
who serves on the national
board of the right-wing
Betar movement, compared
the current situation in
Israel with the late-1930s
position of Czechoslovakia,
which was carved up and
overrun by Nazi Germany.
"I don't want Israel to
suffer the same fate as
Czechoslovakia," Mr.
Seaman said.
Coalition leaders said that

Dennis Ross:
Met with coalition.

for an Israeli referendum,
they were not telling the
government of Israel what to
do. Instead, they said, they
were calling on the Israeli
people to decide on the coun-
try's future.
Coalition members met
with Dennis Ross, the State
Department's peace talks
coordinator; the American
Israel Public Affairs Com-
mittee; and officials at the
Washington Post.
The news conference was a
manifestation of the current
trend toward criticism of
Israeli policies by groups to
the right of the American
Jewish political main-
stream.
During the Likud govern-
ments of Menachem Begin
and Yitzhak Shamir, it was
groups more to the left of the
American Jewish main-
stream that voiced opposi-
tion to Israeli government
policies.
The coalition's approach
was criticized by Abraham
Foxman, national director of
the Anti-Defamation
League, who himself is
perceived as being right of
center.
Mr. Foxman said that the
coalition is acting to
"substitute their judgment
for the judgment of the
Israeli people." Such ac-
tivities, he said, are "not
right two or three years ago
coming from the left, and are
equally wrong now."

A righteous man falls seven
times and rises up again.
